About The Book
The horned toad has been cherished by the state’s youngsters and become a source of wonder to outlanders. Herein is collected the lore surrounding the horned toad in a survey which gives a name to the richly varied assortment of materials making up And Horns on the Toads, a baker’s-score of essays presenting folkish findings all the way from Old Fort Clark in Texas to the Flamenco-filled Gypsy caves of Andalusia.
The volume borrows its title from John Q. Anderson’s article on the horned toad of the Southwest. William Owens’ “Seer of Corsicana” and “Curanderos of South Texas” by Brownie McNeil are about the folk doctors or advisers whom the people visited. The next two articles by John Henry Faulk and William Henry Hardin are about folk characters who have in common a creativity which leads one to imaginative lying and the other to stories, rhymes, or tricks to raise a laugh. George D. Hendricks writes of “Southpaws, Psychology, and Social Science,” and Americo Paredes writes of songs and stories found in the Spanish Southwest. Michael J. Ahearn writes the history of a madstone that has been in his family for a long time. Everett Gillis describes a rural singing school. Girlene Marie Williams writes of “Negro Stories from the Colorado Valley’ while Fred O.Weldon analyses the African-American folk hero. Cultural conflict is evident in Richard Lancaster’s “Why the White Man Will Never Reach the Sun.” Frontier life and ways are reflected in G. A. Reynolds’ essay on “Vigilante Justice in Springtown.” J. R. Jamison tells the story of “The Sinking Treasure of Bowie Creek.” Ruth Dodson’s essay “South Texas Sketches” looks back to frontier life and Kenneth Porter writes of ghost stories.
